Logo: On a black background, we see a camera moving up from the bottom of the screen, emitting a ray of light. Along with it are two theater masks that revolve around the spotlight. They make their way to the center and the light shines on them, causing the masks to become illustrations of one another in a black box with two arcs on opposing corners of the box and the screen to become white. The text is seen beneath it in a black font reading:


  • A short variant is much more common, and the still version exists as well.
  • An in-credit variant seen on early prints of Shortland Street contains the logo placed next to the Grundy logo, as well as the words Produced by South Pacific Pictures Limited in association with Grundy Television Pty Limited. on the bottom.

FX/SFX: The camera/masks moving, the screen changing, fairly competent effects for the time.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the program.

Availability: Rare. The short version was seen on Tales of the South Seas, Monkey House, Miss Piggle Wiggle, Clarence and other local series. The long version appeared on the Alliance Atlantis prints of the last season of Ray Bradbury's Theater, but only earliest episodes as well as Double Booking. The remaining episodes have the action shortened in favor of the Bradshaw MacLeod & Associates logo following it.

Editor's Note: None.
